I have just finished doing a "Repair Install" for my Windows XP with satisfactory results, with no need to do a complete clean install. However I have to do some corrective surgery on my Office 2003. During the "Windows Repair Install" I was required to boot from the system CD which of course required that OS CD was in the CD drive. Now would this be the same to re-install Office 2003? In other words should the system be booted from the CD as opposed to the Hard Drive.
Re-install of Office 2003 for Windows XP Pro

You will want to boot into XP and then insert the Office 2003 CD. The installation should start up automatically. If not, you may need to navigate to your CD drive and run the installer.

Probem with re-install of Office 2003 over top of same. Just noticed that some of my documents on Word are in shadow on list under My Documents. When I try to open one or more of these documents, the file is in computer language. I see that there are choices on dropdown list that can be selected in order to make the document readable. Seeing as i live in North America which one should i use and what may have caused the problem?

Do you mean files with a .doc filetype? If so, right click on one and select Open with then click on Choose default program. Pick Microsoft Office Word (or similar). See if that fixes it.
If all else fails, uninstall and reinstall office. Won't affect the data and only takes a few minutes.
